Blade removal is quick and simple with the 35-300, requiring no tools or disassembly. To discharge a spent blade, the user fully extends it and then presses the release button located next to the blade-slide. Spare blades are stored in the knife's retractable storage compartment. A new blade is inserted into the front of the knife while the release button is held down, and the process is complete.
The 35-300 incorporates a handy rope cutter with a recessed cutting jaw into the front of the knife. Now contractors can cut string or pull-line up to 1/8-inch diameter safely and efficiently adding to the functionality of their utility knife.
The IDEAL 35-300 Electrician's Utility Knife is easily identified in a crowded toolbag thanks to its bright safety yellow.
